I started cautiously this morning - it's cold and wet here right now so didn't want to do anything stupid. Just as well because mid-way though the 5 minute warm up, it became clear that my left leg wasn't playing ball today!! Such a searing ache up the side of my left leg which completely disappeared when I started running!! The runs were easy. The extra 30 seconds didn't bother me and I noticed that I wasn't as out of breath as I was a week ago - so some positives to take from this. But the walks in between were interminable. But yet again, I fought through it and didn't quit and I still managed just over 4k even with the pain.
As soon as I got home and stopped moving the pain disappeared and there are no aches and pains in my leg at all now. I did some research and it sounds like a common problem for runners involving the peroneus longus muscle on the outside of the calf. Specific stretches can help so will make sure I apply those before embarking on R2. I do suffer from corns on the outside of the ball of my foot which, when hurting, does cause me to slightly alter my pronation but I would have thought they would be more of an issue when running rather than walking?
Anyone else had issues with this particular muscle and pain? Any remedies?
